Plastic handles are mostly used in corrugated boxes and paper boxes. They are made using an injection mold and can come in thousands of shapes. Some basic forms of plastic handles include oval plastic handles, body-based plastic handles, and plastic handles with screws. Plastic handles have been applied in electronic product paper boxes, lightweight gift boxes, and Kraft paper boxes.
There are several types of plastic handles that can be used for paper packaging, depending on the intended use and design. Some common types of plastic handles used for paper packaging include:
Flexiloop handles: These are made by creating a loop from a narrow strip of plastic and attaching it to the paper bag. They are often used on larger paper bags.
Patch handles: These are made by attaching a rectangular piece of plastic to the paper bag, creating a reinforced handle.
Rigid loop handles: These are made from a rigid plastic material and are attached to the paper bag using a set of reinforced holes.
Tube handles: These are made from a plastic tube and are attached to the paper bag by threading them through a set of reinforced holes.
T-shirt handles: These are made from a continuous plastic strip and are attached to the paper bag by punching holes through the bag and threading the handle through.
